Had my colonoscopy

Had my colonoscopy today, it really was not a big deal at all, the prep was far worse than the actual procedure, the only discomfort I felt was when the doctor made the "turns" in the colon and the nurses were right there with more meds as needed, I was awake and watched the whole thing and was pleased to hear my diagnosis of IBS, at least that is something I can control.

Re: Had my colonoscopy

Congratulations on your test! Am glad to hear it isnt something more serious. We all know this is serious enough. Are you still taking the calcium tablets? Hope your feeling well, and hope to hear more good news!! catlover

Re: Had my colonoscopy

Thankyou, I am happy too, yep still taking calcium/mag, acidopholus, and if I take 2 doses of metamucil a day it helps, GI told me I can take immodium if I want to also. I feel better though knowing it is not serious. Thankyou all for your concern and helpful advice, I would never had known about these supplements if not for these boards.
